Core Developer Jeff Garzik on the Similarities Between Bitcoin and Linux

Before making any contributions to Bitcoin, Bloq Co-Founder and Bitcoin Core Developer Jeff Garzik was a longtime Linux developer who started working on the operating system in the early nineties — before the creation of Red Hat. As someone who was involved in the early development of both Linux and Bitcoin, Garzik has a unique perspective on the common themes found in the two respective development communities.

The biggest difference however is that Linux is only an operating system while bitcoin is a monetary system, they are at totally different level economic and political wise

An operating system is just a tool, Linux is free for anyone and people can throw it away at any time. A monetary system is about value and trust, bitcoin is not free and people won't throw them away because that is money
